Would you date a robot?
A quarter of people would happily become a robosexual!
We’re not so sure we’re ready to stick our pink bits in a robot’s exhaust pipe!
A survey has found that a quarter of people (aged 18-34) would be happy to date a robot. A ComRes research published by FutureFest asked the public to imagine the world in 20 years in time – and apparently dating and sexing with robots was on the cards.
Recent films depicting human-machine romances may soon become a reality; a quarter (26 per cent) of people in the UK said that they would happily date a robot – provided their android beau looked just like a real-life human being.
Happy to be microchipped!
Meanwhile, half (50 per cent) of Brits who already use contactless bank cards say that they would be happy to have microchips implanted under their skin to open doors or log on at work, and a third (32 per cent) of all British adults believe that in fifty years’ time the sale of fizzy drinks to under-16s will be as tightly controlled as tobacco is today.
So who’s the hottest robot?
